US-based food solutions company SpartanNash has partnered with grocery delivery platform DoorDash to expand its on-demand grocery offerings.
As part of the omnichannel partnership, DoorDash will provide on-demand grocery delivery service from more than 100 SpartanNash-owned stores, including Family Fare and Martin’s Super Markets outlets.
At the same time, 2,100 independently owned retail customers of SpartanNash will have access to DoorDash’s marketplace mobile app and website, as well as DoorDash Drive, the company’s white-label fulfilment platform.
SpartanNash president and CEO Tony Sarsam said: “Customer-centric innovation is a key priority to drive growth at SpartanNash and joining forces with DoorDash will enable us to expand our customer base and capture more of the grocery retail market by rapidly scaling our digital offering with a leading partner.
“We know our customers’ grocery needs well and have the supply chain and retail footprint to provide strategic service based on their preferences.
“This partnership with DoorDash complements our collective strengths and will drive growth across the food ecosystem—from food distribution to e-commerce—to deliver the ingredients for a better life.”
Under the terms of the partnership, SpartanNash will distribute its pantry and household items to DashMart, a brick-and-mortar convenience store launched by DoorDash in 2020.
The distribution service will initially be available in New York City and is expected to expand into additional locations in the future.
DoorDash CEO and co-founder Tony Xu said: “We are excited to partner with SpartanNash to bring innovative e-commerce solutions to their beloved grocery banners across the Midwest, independent grocers and retailers so that they can build their omnichannel presence and provide consumers with access to convenient, on-demand grocery delivery.”
Last month, DoorDash partnered with US-based e-commerce company eGrowcery to offer on-demand delivery services.
The partnership will allow retailers on eGrowcery’s platform to access DoorDash Drive for the delivery of their grocery orders.
